CinemaCon has finally arrived and brought along plenty of news for movie fans, especially those of the DC Extended Universe. On Tuesday evening, Warner Bros. Discovery took to the stage to hint at its forthcoming slate. While the studio was sure to highlight a vast array of films, most of its presentation was focused on highlighting many of its DC releases like The Flash, Black Adam, Aquaman andthe Lost Kingdom, and of course, Shazam: Fury of The Gods.
CinemaCon brought us some new details on the film, with some new footage debuting at the event with stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel. Helen Mirren, and Jack Dylan Grazer who were on stage to present. The panel featured some brand new footage from the film, opening with Billy having a dream that he was on a date with Wonder Woman in which she turns into the Wizard Shazam. The footage also featured the daughters of Atlas and Mirrens’ Hespera fighting Shazam.
In the footage with Billy fighting Hespera, he mentions that he has seen the Fast and The Furious movies and knows that saving the world is all about family, with the Shazam family showing up to aid the champion.
Fans were delighted to hear back in March that the sequel to 2019’s Shazam! would indeed be released much earlier than expected. Initially set to release on June 2nd, 2023, the film will hit theaters this holiday season on Dec. 16th, 2022. Fans will have to wait just a little bit longer to get a look at some footage from the film presented looks to be going public right now.
